Quotes

Captain Manzini: [handing Dodger something to replace his dirty clothes] Here, try this on.
Dodger: A dress?
Captain Manzini: Only to western eyes. This is a dashiki, given to me by the great African leader Um-Tuh-Tuh, in gratitude for making his mother-in-law disappear.
Dodger: You were in Africa?
Captain Manzini: Actually, I was on my way back from Egypt. I was doing a split week, Cleveland and Cairo. But that's a long story.

I could not even comprehend that this was a movie.
12 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt like I had been locked in a basement for seven years, tortured, raped, and mentally abused by the time this thing was done.

This deserves a zero! it honestly does! It deserves a zero.

This film is evil incarnate. EVIL.

I still wake up every night. Screaming. Screaming.

I am honestly very disturbed by this turd of a "movie".

Manos: the Hands of Fate is better than this movie! THIS IS THE WORST MOVIE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL HUMANITY!! I WANT TO BOMB OURSELVES THAT'S HOW BAD THIS IS.
